    Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin ‘Jump,’ Break Out Keytar for Van Halen Cover

    Musicians dedicate Night Four of their ‘Hanukkah Sessions’ to “Diamond Dreidel DLR”

    ALTHEA LEGASPI
    DECEMBER 1, 2021

    Dave Grohl and Greg Kurstin continue to have a campy good time during their “Hanukkah Sessions,” where they cover a song by a Jewish artist for each night of the Festival of Lights.

    For Night Four, they offer up their rendition of Van Halen’s “Jump.”



    In their latest visual, the musicians imitate some of the moves from the band’s original 1984 video, complete with some synchronized leaps, Grohl crawling on the ground and both of them hamming it up for the camera. Kurstin delivers a mean keytar solo to boot.

    “Quite possibly the loudest and proudest of hard rocking Jews, David Lee Roth has gone on record crediting his Bar Mitzvah preparation as his earliest vocal training,” the Foo Fighters frontman and producer captioned the video.

    “He became a rockstar the day he became a man: Diamond Dreidel DLR and Van Halen…with ‘Jump.'”

    This year’s sessions have included their renditions of Barry Manilow’s “Copacabana,” Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop” and Lisa Loeb’s “Stay (I Missed You).”

    On Tuesday, Foo Fighters announced their 2022 North American stadium tour. Shortly afterward, the group said they were nixing their show at Huntington Bank Stadium in Minneapolis due to the venue not agreeing to the band’s Covid safety measures.

    are the veil.

    Beauty is eternity gazing at itself
    in a mirror.

    But you are eternity
    and you are the mirror.

    So cool!!

    The tribute to the ‘Jump’ video itself was pretty funny.

    Yes! Loved the homage and the EVH striped keyboard solo was like Eddie and Holdsworth on his synth axe!
